More important than the type of toothbrush you choose is the amount of time you actually spend brushing your teeth. It is important to brush 2-3 times a day, spending at least 2-3 minutes brushing each time to ensure that plaque is removed from the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth.

Electric Toothbrushes
The U9 Dental team recommends using an electric toothbrush for optimal oral health. Electric toothbrushes will break up plaque and many models have a timer that will remind you how long you need to brush. We also recommend that you have a manual toothbrush with soft, rounded bristles as a back-up.
